Still under warranty? We sent our camera back for repairs after we had similar issues and the Canon support was fabulous. We could take movies but not stills (pictures).  Call for a Return Authorization number first. We had our camera back in a week or so.

Cannon SD 750 - when i try to take a picture a black screen appe

Think that you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Screen display problem

It sounds like your "backlight" went out. This is a tiny compact fluorescent bulb in the LCD that lights up the screen. There are usually two reasons for this 1) the bulb burns out or 2) the little circuit board that powers the light fails, this is called the "inverter board" and is either in the "lid" (screen part) of the laptop or in the main base of the laptop. That's why there is a really dim picture. There are two parts of the LCD, one to produce the picture and the bulb that illuminates this picture so you can see it easily.

There's no easy way to test this. You will either have to replace the LCD or replace the inverter board to check. Usually the problem is with the inverter board, which is good because it can be easier to replace and a lot cheaper than a new LCD screen.

You can check HERE to see if any of these guides looks like they might help you replace the inverter. They don't have your exact computer, but they do have several models that are similar.

If you take it to a commercial repair shop it will probably cost between $250-400 to repair. If you contact someone good through Craigslist or some other similar service in your area, you should be able to find someone to do it for about $50+ parts.

Good luck.

Did you accidentally hit the DISPLAY button on the back of the camera. It turns the LCD screen on and off in picture mode to save batteries.

The image is getting blurred


The camera may have moved when the picture was taken. Try steadily squeezing the button intead of a quick press.

2.Try using a tripod, this could fix the blurred images.

3. faster shutter speed will be needed if you need to hold the camera, and cannot use a tripod.

4. Main reason for the lines could be that the subject is to bright.
A vertical bar of light(red, purple) appears on the LCD monitor/ in the viewfinder This is a normal occurrence in devices containing CCDs (Digital Cameras) and does not mean a malfunction. (This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded when shooting

Solution to the last point would be to try and switch of the flash if it is in use. Turn the ISO setting (50, 100, 200) to a lower one as well.

Hope that helps.
